Cog Wild acknowledges that we operate on the traditional territories of tribes of Oregon who have lived in this region since time immemorial. The people were forcibly removed from the land during a series of treaties with the United States in the 1800s. Today, Oregon’s tribal people live in urban and rural areas and on many reservations throughout the state. In the areas we operate, the primary tribes are The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. Learn more about the tribes of Oregon or of your home region at Native Land Digital.

The trails we ride are currently stewarded by the United States Forest Service (USFS) and many non profit trail work organizations including Central Oregon Trail Alliance, Alpine Trail Crew Association, Disciples of Dirt and Greater Oakridge Trail Stewards. Cog Wild pays the USFS 3% percent of revenue earned on the forest and gives back to the land and cycling community through volunteer trail work and donations of money, goods or services to organizations that increase opportunities for all people to recreate outside.

Cog Wild invests in our staff and supports them to be the best guide, coach or driver possible.

Reservation process was painless. They were knowledgeable on all trails and took the time to answer questions. The shuttle left promptly and they were very efficient. Thank you Cog Wild!

I took the shuttle up to Alpine in Oakridge, and my group had a great experience! I generally hate shuttles because I am so prone to motion sickness on windy mountain roads, but our driver Brian was a great driver and was so kind to make sure I was feeling okay on the way up, which really meant a lot to me. He was also so helpful loading and unloading our bikes and genuinely wanted us to have a great time out there. It was a good start to a good day. Thanks cogwild!!

The seat bolts broke on my rented bike (and CW doesn't include tools, which most MTB rentals do), so I had to ride 10+ miles downhill with no seat. Cog Wild didn't seem very interested in rectifying the situation or even offering an apology, even after I filled out their Feedback Request email, which directs you to a private form instead of a public review if you want to rate less than 4 stars.

This was the first time I've taken a Cog Wild shuttle in a while. It was easy to book online, the shuttle loading and unloading was quick and efficient, the driver got my son and me up to Dutchman Flat quickly despite two other stops--what's not to love? Thanks!

The information from Cog Wild at the shuttle for riding the trails was informative.We had a really good time riding the trails and did some of the ones they recommended. I also like that it didn’t break the bank.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Cog Wild. Our guide, Katie, made sure to check in with us about our preferences and she designed a route that was fun for the whole family. She was knowledgeable about the terrain and gave us a good combination of flow and tech, as well as opt-out options. We were happy with the communication from Cog Wild and the shutte ride was super. We loved our mtb experience in Bend!

LOGEThat's how the name looks on the sign.This lodge is awesome and u can pick up for a Cog Wild ride right from the bar at the lodge after a cold one before or after the ride. Oh, and they also have a cool training loop the goes around the lodge that's just .5 miles.

What a fantastic experience! Cog Wild was super easy to book with, and it was very straight forward with arrival, rentals, and shuttle. I consider myself an intermediate to advanced mountain bike rider, but haven’t ridden in a few years. I chose the full day guided tour (solo rider), from Mt Bachelor to Bend. 33 miles of the best alpine single track I’ve ridden! Russ was a fantastic tour guide. He taught me a few tips to help me acclimate to the fully loaded full suspension bikes, since I was used to a hardtail. I would highly recommend this tour with Cog Wild.

Love the Cogs. Oakridge is my favorite place to rip single-track, so I try to ride there whenever I can. Because of this however, I am usually solo. Cog Wild's consistent (& fairly comprehensive!) shuttle schedule lets me get in a couple big rides every day. The drivers are super, and I enjoy getting a little socializing in on the up, and sometimes on the down!

World class mountain biking right at your finger tips. I bought the season pass since I live in Eugene. Favorite trails are Moon Point and Lawler. Alpine is a good one too if you don't mind a bit of climbing. Cogwild has been a great experience so far, lots of expertise, friendly company - they are passionate about the sport and have their act together! Stoked on Stoke-ridge, Oregon and more shuttles to come!

Best shuttle experience ever. It's super convenient that they operate out of both Oakridge and Bend. All the drivers are really kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. The owners are lovely people with a vast depth of knowledge about both areas. They recommended fantastic trails, restaurants, and even areas beyond Bend and Oakridge.Bend has trails for every level, and they will guide you to whatever link ups are most appropriate to your skill level.If you are thinking of riding in these areas do not miss out on this spectacular experience!

I have been out with Cog Wild on their shuttles many times. This year, the price has gone up. I still wont hesitate to go, because its phenomenal riding. This year, there was a bunch of snow at the area (wanoga) we shuttled to. The driver didn't mention it. I know we should be self-sufficient, but a courteous heads-up woulda been tite.

Joined a couple of friends to shuttle in Oakridge with Cog Wild last week and it was awesome. Brian, our shuttle driver was super helpful loading and unloading our bikes, and made sure everyone knew where the trail was — and how to find your way back to the shop at the end. Can't wait to go back and ride with Cog again!

Had a great experience with Cog Wild. We rented bikes, took the shuttle, and used their guide service. The bikes were good, the shuttle left on time, and our guide Wade was great to do a full days ride with. He clearly knew the area and was a wealth of knowledge. He was a pleasure to hang out with.

We did two shuttles with Cog Wild and both were great. We did a 9 AM shuttle to the Alpine trails and then an afternoon shuttle to Dead Mountain. Alpine is an epic shuttle through the primordial forest. Beautiful, fun and challenging though not overly so. Dead Mountain is flowy up top and fast and fun on the bottom. Cog Wild are super chill and very helpful. I would definitely use them again.

My hubby and I use CogWild to shuttle every time we go to Bend to ride. All the employees are veteran riders who know the Bend Trails. They are able to make trail recommendations based on your experience and what you want to get out of the day. Because they also own bikes, you can be assured that they will treat your bike with care as they load and unload. Their whole team is super chill and professional. In all the years we have been shuttling with them, we have had nothing but great service.

The guides were like old friends. Part of our group. Took us to awesome trails that were within our skill level but pushed us to our limits. Always on time and very friendly. Perfect trip. Can’t say enough about how awesome they are. Cheers!!
